Sandusky Bridge Sealer

Gravity Fed Resin on 21 Bridges in 60 days

Location: Sandusky, OH
Project Type: Department of Transportation

About this Project

In July 2018, RAM Construction Services began a Gravity Fed Resin project in Sandusky, Ohio. Gravity Fed Resin is a sealer designed to penetrate the cracks on a given structure to prevent water infiltration. Fine grade aggregate is broadcasted directly after application to provide friction for the travelling public; the top layer of the system eventually wears off, leaving only the filled cracks/imperfections.

This project consists of approximately 360,000 square feet of Gravity Fed Resin on 21 bridges throughout the Sandusky area. One factor that makes this project unique is a 60-day restriction, at which time the project must be fully completed. Amidst a very wet season, the 60-day restriction became a mild concern, but we took every opportunity to speed up the schedule and are currently projecting an early completion.

What truly separates this project from the rest is the fact that RAM is performing its own traffic control. During the bidding process, we knew the only way we could be competitive is if we set up our own closures, rather than hiring a subcontractor do this for us. Luckily, we had previously established a relationship with a local traffic controller who was able to give us very good rental pricing and offered to set up a few of the detour routes for us. Performing our own traffic control proved to be very cost-effective and allowed us to gain priceless experience for use on future projects.

"I wanted to take a minute let you both know what a pleasure it was working with each of you on the AJC Ramp Area Water Infiltration Repair Project.  However the main reason I am writing is inform you both of the outstanding performance of your lead foreman Brian.  His dedication to our project is to be commended. I hope that RAM is aware of the quality of his character and overall leadership."

"I would like to take this time and recognize Warren for his work on the Ford Hub project in Dearborn, MI as it relates to the foundation and under slab waterproofing and vapor mitigation systems. Warren has shown an extended dedication an effort to this project and assisted in our efforts to provide the customer with a quality product and installation. This particular project has had numerous challenges as it relates to the project design, manufacturer’s requirements, and stringent project schedule. Warren has shown an extended effort which include but not limited to immediate responsiveness to current work being put in place, issues resulting from inspections, managing and appropriating field crews for work in multiple areas, and assisting in resolving issues with the waterproofing and vapor mitigation systems. We appreciate his positive attitude on a daily basis, and consistent work ethic."

"Jason provides astounding leadership, an acute ability to comprehend what needs to be done, and executes in an extremely timely fashion without sacrificing quality or safety. Since he joined our project team he has been very responsive, a go getter, and if we lived in a perfect world I believe the entire masonry restoration scope would have been complete before the first snow fall. He is also not shy about speaking out if there is an issue vs taking the easier route and passing the buck onto the next person or next trade or down the road leaving an issue for GRPS or RC to deal with. He has helped our team with expanding our knowledge on masonry work in general and has provided lessons that our team to take to the next project and beyond."
